Player Notes
MLB.com's Peter Gammons reports that the Cardinals are set to acquire Justin Masterson from the Indians.

Advice: The New York Post's Joel Sherman says the Cardinals will send James Ramsey to the Indians in the deal. Masterson has struggled in his walk season, posting a posting a 5.51 ERA over 19 starts. He's battled a knee injury, though, and the Cards are obviously hoping he's healthy and can improve in a move to the National League. Masterson should make his Cardinals' debut on Saturday against the Brewers. St. Louis presumably is out of picture for Jon Lester and David Price now.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Indians are "very willing to move" Justin Masterson.

Advice: Passan says the Indians want "young, controllable starting pitching" in return, which is going to be a tough find. Masterson can become a free agent after the season and owns a rough 5.51 ERA and 1.63 ERA in 98 innings this year. The big right-hander is also on the disabled list currently with a right knee injury, though he's due back Friday night.

Justin Masterson struggled during his second rehab start with Triple-A Columbus on Friday, allowing five runs on four hits over his 6 2/3 innings.

Advice: The veteran right-hander struggled mightily with his command, issuing six walks and throwing just 62 of his 108 pitches for strikes. This outing certainly won't help his trade value, and it's likely he'll need at least one more tune-up before rejoining the Indians rotation.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that teams have asked the Indians about the availability of Justin Masterson.

Advice: Making his way back from a knee injury, Masterson will make his second rehab start with Triple-A Columbus on Friday and could wind up returning with another team. The 29-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the season after extension talks with the Indians this spring broke down. Masterson has put up a disappointing 5.51 ERA through 19 starts in his walk year, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him have a nice second half if his knee is right.

Justin Masterson (knee) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

Advice: Masterson allowed a pair of runs over five innings in his first outing for Columbus on Sunday. The Indians contemplated having him rejoin the big league rotation on Friday but ultimately decided he'd be best off making another rehab start. He should be back in the Tribe's rotation next week.

Justin Masterson (knee) went five innings in his first minor league rehab start at Triple-A Columbus on Sunday, allowing a pair of runs on five hits.

Advice: The big right-hander racked up six strikeouts on the night while walking a pair. He threw 71 pitches in the outing, 47 of them for strikes. With a decent effort under his belt, it's possible he'll be cleared to rejoin the Indians rotation on Friday against the Royals in Kansas City.
